When you get to the point of cleaning the tractor up, spray the entire tires with some full strength degreaser like Purple Power and then pressure wash them (hot water if possible). You'll be surprised at how clean and good they'll look!

I uploaded a picture. I hope it comes through!

Other than getting the plow on, I have noticed a few things that needed attention. The previous owner ran by the saying "if a little is good, then a lot is better." This being the case, as there was about 15 quarts of gear lube in the transmission/pto gear box. I somehow managed not to make my garage floor look like a BP oil spill. It now has 5 qts of fresh fluid, as defined in the owners manual.
He also used concentrate antifreeze (without water) in the radiator. My plan is to drain that tomorrow night and put in 50/50. He also ran into something (tree) and broke the right headlight lens and the top of the muffler. It currently sounds like a hot rod.

The rear rims are rusting pretty bad from being loaded their whole lives. I have be struggling to find 9x24 rims. Any suggestions?

Other than that, just some routine maintenance to get it ready for the winter. This spring starts the full rebuild.

Cheers!

M.E. Miller tire probably has rims. I'd look at getting blank ones, removing your old cleats, and having them attached to the new rims. The rims available now with the cleats already on them don't look "correct."

I am practically drooling on my keyboard over those tires.... :D New ones with that tread pattern are only available in one size, I believe for a :censored: :censored: N series Ford......

I have a Super A blade on the 130.
This is how it hooks up.

Not my tractor, but a good look at the blade set-up on an industrial front axle SA.

Also another source of anti-freeze loss is the seal on the hydraulic pump.

Can't loose antifreeze through the hyd. pump. Only hydraulic fluid. Loosing antifreeze is likely due to a bad freeze plug (welch plug) at the rear of the engine. Got to split it to get to it.

Hi Kyle, Looks like we share a zip code. (for a few weeks) I am moving from Richfield Township to Oxford.
Welcome to the forum. Nice looking Super A. I'm sure you will have it pushing a small mountain of white fluff soon!

Oxford is not too far away! Good to know there are some local Farmall people.
